A young bride's happiness on her wedding day comes to a tragic and abrupt end. Read by Bryony Hannah. Introduced by Kate Mosse. The happiness of a young bride on her wedding day comes to a tragic and abrupt end. They are all inspired by legends and folktales from the French and Sussex Countryside and each story explores the relationship between landscape and emotion. Grief and Guilt. Loss and happiness.
The collection also contains her award winning play Syrinx. The stories here are both traditional ghost stories where ephemeral spectres haunt buildings and landscapes, desirous of both peace and revenge, and also subtler stories of loss and grief. Overall, there is a sense of the unsettled past finally finding peace. Here we are treated to both modern and historical stories set in Sussex, Hampshire, Brittany and the Languedoc. Although some of the stories are more successful than others I particularly enjoyed the circular nature of the collection as it starts and ends with the tragedy of the poor Mistletoe Bride in two different incarnations , all are worthy of inclusion.
